Augustine: a late love

Thursday, March 3, 2022
Taste and see that the LORD is good;
    blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
    —Psalm 34:8 (NIV)
    Thou didst call, and cry aloud, and break through my deafness. Thou didst blaze forth, and shine, and scatter my blindness. Thou wert fragrant, and I drew in my breath, and pant for Thee. I tasted, and now I hunger and thirst. Thou didst touch me, and I burned for Thy peace.
    ... St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430), Confessions [397], Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1886, X.xxvii, p. 263-264 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 34:8; 42:1-2; Isa. 6:9-10; Matt. 11:4-6; John 9:25
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have conquered me.
